Summary for Policymakers of IPCC Special Report
Ninety-one authors and review editors from 40 countries prepared the IPCC report in response to an invitation from the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) when it adopted the Paris Agreement in 2015.
The report’s full name is Global Warming of 1.5°C, an IPCC special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways, in the context of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change, sustainable development, and efforts to eradicate poverty.
Carbon Footprint Calculator
Many of our daily activities – such as using electricity, driving a car, or disposing of waste – cause greenhouse gas emissions. Together these emissions make up a household’s carbon footprint.
The calculator estimates your footprint in three areas: home energy, transportation and waste. Everyone’s carbon footprint is different depending on their location, habits, and personal choices.
U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit
The U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit is a website designed to help people find and use tools, information, and subject matter expertise to build climate resilience. The Toolkit offers information from all across the U.S. federal government in one easy-to-use location.
This inter-agency initiative operates under the auspices of the United States Global Change Research Program. The site is managed by NOAA’s Climate Program Office and is hosted by NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information.
Sierra Club Municipal Toolkit
This page is intended for municipal leaders and activists to find out more information about how their communities can make the switch to 100% renewable energy in a number of different ways in order to decrease their carbon footprints and fight back against climate change, while saving money for their residents.
A Guide to Local Action
Members of the Climate Smart Communities program are a network of New York communities engaged in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improving climate resilience. The program provides guidance to local governments on best practices for mitigating and adapting to climate change. Communities can take action in two main ways to minimize the risks of climate change and reduce its long-term costs: Reducing GHG Emissions and Adapting to a Changing Climate
